Witch Bottle

Hello you spooky babies!
Hallowe’en is upon us, much akin to a cape upon Count Dracula himself! Emily and Lisa read some quesstioonnss from Twittterrrr (please read in a scary voice). On Chunch Chat, we are haunted by the devil himself. On today’s seasonally appropriate Wiki of the Week, we read the Wikipedia page for “Witch bottle,” a countermagical device used by both witches and non-witches alike. Next time you pee in a bottle, know that you’re participating in a century old protection ritual!
